Dear J, Hope that it is better. The .25 dose really reduced the rls pain and symptoms, and if I lay real still the heart racing wasn't too bad to endure. On the .5 doseage I was dreaming and waking up every few hours after three days. Dr. said I could reduce the dose in half back to .25 and the rls ...

How goes the dosing? Breathing leg breathing leg... gotta say I'd go with breathing! *BG* Couldn't sleep for a while last night, so watched a couple of Red Green shows I had recorded. I think that the weed eater engine would be just the right amount of vibration... more than that would probably set ...

Mark, I found this website about a month ago, during a severe rls crisis. I can empathize. Honestly, during those weeks driving a car was extremely difficult at times my eyes just couldn't keep focused from time to time. Luckily I live in a rural area, so taking back roads was my only saving grace a...

Dear J, Sorry to hear that you are having surgery. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. You doctor is aware of your RLS and you have discussed medications prior to this surgery? If not I would do so. Number One I would have the list of meds which aggravate RLS - multiple copies... hopef...

Ruby, that is a great idea. If it wasn't for those brief episodes of limited creativity, my purpose sometimes becomes clouded. It is my hope that with proper treatment protocal and pain management my creative side might be utilized more. Like so many have expressed, this dark pit of uncertainty we l...

Brought two oars with me today, stirring up that hope does work! Finding a doctor who acknowledges that the medical community does not have all the answers AND is willing to work with you on creating a treatment protocal is a Godsend. Dr. Hodges actually told me that by working with me he will be ab...

Ria, It is one of those pivotal moments in our lives that we realize we are unique! For years it was why does no one else seem to feel this way, so I was always trying to be normal in a body that wanted validation. When I was younger I look back on those long nights remodeling the house or working o...

Have to second Ann suggestion. We purchased our Tempurpedic king-size two years ago as Will was sold on the pillows which helped relieve his nightly neck pain, and wonders he no longer snored. It is important not to buy just any brand as the quality does differ. What may be a bargain at the time, in...
